Reminder: A Member Benefit that We Hope You Never Need

SFMA reminds you about a membership benefit that we hope you’ll never need to use – the extension of your SFMA membership at no cost to you, if you lose your job.

SFMA stands behind its members and will assist any member in any category who loses his or her job by continuing their SFMA membership, at no charge for up to six months. This benefit relies on the ‘honor system’, and if you become employed during this six month-period, the association assumes that you will pay your regular membership dues.

This membership extension allows you access to very important job search benefits including job listings, career information and actively network with your peers using the on-line SFMA Membership Directory. Your membership continues seamlessly, with all rights and privileges of your membership category. SFMA’s membership year is calendar based, January through December. As this year draws to a close, if you are affected by a job loss, please call SFMA, 800-323-3875 or email SFMAinfo@SFMA.org to activate this benefit.

There are very few rules. You must have been a member of SFMA for at least one year. If you have not found employment after six months, SFMA offers an Affiliate Membership to you at the $60 member-rate, which is not a voting membership.
